OFFICE OF THE ODIKRO
a companion of the black star!
My dear Mr. Kofi Kankamah,
I do agree with you up to the point of throwing blows! I don't throw blows, but I can get very angry. The best way to fight these war-mongers is to remain peaceful. They want there to be some confusion in Ghana, and they are working towards that. You play into their hands when you give them blows! Having said that, I must hasten to add, in order not to tempt them with any perception of leniency on our part, I believe in the principle of legitimate self-defence as a moral responsibility of all humanity.
I disagree strongly with the writer. If Akufo-Addo is really the "listening" guy he wants us to believe, he would have taken action long ago against this recalcitrant cousin whose works keep undermining him!
It is even possible that he does not see anything wrong with what Okoampa has been writing all along! Why would he have been made a member of the Governing Board of an Akufo-Addo key front-organisation, the Danquah Institute?
The main issue that is scary here is that Okoampa is working against peace in Ghana. Akufo-Addo can never win a peaceful, transparent, and democratic elections. That is why they want to use "takashi" (force).
The fact that Ghana is still relatively peaceful is a threat to their nefarious ambitions. That is why they are resorting to fanning inter-ethnic animosities at the slightest opportunity. The "all die be die" nonsense of "we the Akans are not cowards" and "Michael “Trokosi” Dokosi Is a Togolese Ewe…", and even his current article on display today, see: Feature Article of Wednesday, 24 August 2011, Columnist: Okoampa-Ahoofe, Kwame “Peace” Is a Relative Term, is nothing but a display of a blood-thirsty desire for war in Ghana.
What explains insulting a whole ethnic group as a part of an electoral campaign? Do you think it is to get their votes? Think again! It is to provoke them to insult back and raise the inter-ethnic animosity. What Okoampa and his owners need to get their man as President is not the vote of Ghanaians, but the support of the "international community" once a conflict begins- Ivory Coast style!
This is what makes people like Akufo-Addo, particularly his silence over Okoampa, extremely dangerous!
